"There's something in the air"

I'm going to take a moment here to go off topic and talk about Macworld (it's actually not that far off-topic, as many photographers, myself included, convert their scans and digital images to B&W using a Mac).

This afternoon Steve Jobs gives his annual keynote speech, and rumors abound. However, a big hint can be found today on Apple's homepage, which says "There's something in the air." What, oh what, could it be?

Here are my guesses, based on a combination of stuff I've read and my own warped mind:

1. A new or improved WiFi standard
2. A faster wireless phone standard (any iPhone users can tell you that this is much needed)
3. A bigger push for Apple TV
4. The Apple iPlane, which is never late, has ample legroom, and genious flight attendants, but can only land at four airports.

Me? I'm rooting for the plane. The airports will catch up.

10 Biggest Apple Rumors (that never came true)

UPDATE: while #3 was in the mix, the big news is the MacBook Air ($1799), which is so thin it fits in a manilla envelope, the thinnest laptop in the world. Pretty cool!

Interesting post about Apple. I've never really been into products from Apple, but they are innovative nonetheless. Thanks!
